I enjoy this kind of challenge as the research always leads to something cool I didn’t know. After consulting DeadBase X it appears that the 7/29/88 Crazy Fingers is the only time (for a full song.)

Although maybe discussed here before, some interesting facts for the heck of it.
IKYR has been in the repertoire since at least early 1966. First China Cat was 1/17/68.
First China > Rider 9/30/69 - Rider had not been played since 12/1/66.
There weren’t many times that they departed from the sequence after this, excepting for a couple more times in ‘69 and acoustic Riders.

3/31/73.....Other One > Spanish jam > Rider
3/9/85......China Cat > Cumberland > Miracle > Eyes
11/10/85....Half Step > Rider > Playin’> UJB >supplication jam
8/5/89......Hey Pocky Way > Playin’> Rider > Terrapin

That was fun and hopefully accurate.

A minor correction...
The first China>Rider was on 9-30-69.

This is a more detailed discussion of early China>Riders - it'll be of no help in finding later China>???>Riders, but it does have a complete list of the songs China segued into in '69, along with some unusual early placements:

My apologies, obviously I should have cross-referenced DeadBase with the archive.
I had been wondering if you were going to post on this – belatedly I am digging 7/5 Electric Theater and find the catch – Jerry abruptly strikes High Time. Thanks.

ps. I'm going to modify my first post so it reads true.

Thanks for your great work, lia.

China Cat was the song where I first felt the deep psychedelia of the Grateful Dead. I had heard Uncle John's Band, Shakedown Street, and Terrapin Station before then and thought of them as a Classic Rock band with folky, bluesy undertones... didn't really know what to think of Terrapin at first except that it was awesome.

I could have sworn there was a China > Foolish Heart > Rider sometime in the 80's... I don't really like Foolish Heart too much but the main instrumental hook is beautiful.
